While attending last summer’s San Diego Comic-Con the cast of DIRK GENTLY HOLISTIC DETECTIVE AGENCY was in attendance to preview Season 2 and the continuing wacky, outrageous adventures through the twisted timelines. Here is what was gleaned from the interview with stars Samuel Barnett and Elijah Wood:

We’re curious exactly where are your characters pickup up on this next season. Is there a time jump?

SAMUEL: It’s like two months later.

What is Todd’s mindset? Is he traumatized by the fact his sister is gone?

ELIJAH: Yeah, Todd is desperately searching for Dirk and desperately searching for his sister with a great deal of conviction and belief in what Dirk stands for. They’re sort of following the universe in that everything is connected and the universe will lead you to where you need to go. Todd was very slow to come on board with that, but he is absolutely fully convinced now.

SAMUEL: But Dirk’s having an existential crisis because Dirk’s finding he has friends. That’s the problem when you have friends is that you have people to care about. Once you have people to care about, they could get hurt and then you could feel sad. Also Dirk’s realizing that he’s kind of misconnecting the fact that his so-called kind of powers and belief in the universe when everyone around him keeps getting hurt because of it. So his thing is that this actually maybe just nonsense. So he’s going to do a complete 180 degree, more to where Todd began — which is, “I don’t want to do this and I think it’s nonsense. I need to really kind of have this crisis about that.”

Todd and Dirk had a really complex relationship throughout the first season. What can you guys tease about how that dynamic will evolve going into Season 2?

Last week we shared with you our interview with Mpho Koaho and Fiona Dourif from Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency while at San Diego ComicCon. This week, we here at ThreeIfBySpace.net are giving you an exclusive look at the transcript from our interview with Elijah Wood (Todd Brotzman) and Samuel Barnett (Dirk Gently).

Q:  Were you blown away by the scripts for season 2?

Elijah: Yes. Yes.

Samuel: Actually more so even than season 1. In season 2, the characters are deeper and richer, the storylines are crazier, but easier to follow. It’s where we all go, who we all become, the journey we get to go on because it’s slightly longer with 10 episodes. It’s even deeper. It’s great.

Q: You’ve both worked with some geniuses in your career. How would you describe working with Max Landis, with the lines and situations he give you to do?

Samuel: Well, he’s original.

Elijah: And he’s brilliant. He’s really brilliant. I’ve never met anyone like him, I don’t know anyone who has a mind that works the way his works. And for us as actors, we could talk about this on so many levels, but simply on a character level, he’s written really rich characters with extraordinary dialogue. He makes it so easy for us. He does so much of our work in a way.

Samuel: It’s all on the page.

Elijah: It’s there. There’s a rhythm to the way that writes dialogue that I’ve never encountered that I find really challenging and fun. In fact, if you follow that rhythm, it feels like the voice of the character.

Samuel: He writes, this is going to sound weird, but he writes Dirk as a British man. It’s really distinctly different in the words he uses to the American characters. It really is. It’s like a British writer’s written it.

Elijah: Hobbes’ (Tyler Labine) text sounds like Tyler’s version of Hobbes. My text sounds like Todd. It’s very, very specific. So that’s one aspect of working with Max.

Samuel: That’s one aspect. And he has original thought. He has original ideas. Which is so hard these days. And not only does he take things and have an original twist on them, but has original things that have never been seen before.

Elijah: Except for in this new season. But it feels like the show, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, is, and it felt like this in the first season, but even more so now that we get to go back and continue exploring the characters in new scenarios, it’s a big sandbox for him. It’s a creative sandbox. Where BBC America has given him license to explore his imagination. And we get to articulate that. That’s really what we’re doing. And it’s wonderful. It fills him with no end of enthusiasm, but everyone else working on the show. The art department to the costumes to us as actors getting to fulfill these things. We’re all working in this ridiculous, really fun sandbox that is of Max’s mind.

Samuel: Max’s mind as sandbox. Go with that.  Take 2.

The actor talks VR game Transference, Jeremy Corbyn, and My Dad Wrote a Porno

Elijah Wood, the Hollywood actor best known for his role as Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, has a high horror threshold. He’s describing a new video game he’s worked on as “a little unsettling”. Less hardened players have said the virtual reality thriller Transference is scarier than that. At its E3 debut gamers were left swearing in shock and needed to decompress afterwards.

Speaking on the phone, Wood sounds relaxed but chooses his words carefully. The game, he explains thoughtfully, is about a man called Raymond Hayes, whose brain research lets you experience other people’s consciousness. In the demo, the Oculus Rift headset transports players into the glitching brain map of a post-traumatic stress disorder sufferer, exploring a creaky house where interactive objects unlock sometimes visceral traumatic memories.

It’s not what you expect from a former hobbit. But Wood, 36, has moved on — the American actor is now using his star power to back cult horror films and explore the genre’s untapped potential in virtual reality.

Fresh from cult film hits such as A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and The Greasy Strangler, Transference marks the first VR game from Wood’s production company Spectrevision .

The game is the fruit of a collaboration with publisher Ubisoft, and self-proclaimed long-time gamer Wood is reluctant to divulge any of its dark secrets. Even the E3 taster demo experience was more an indication of the project’s general direction than the final gameplay.

I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore is the latest feature from writer Macon Blair and marks his directorial debut. The film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, stars Elijah Wood and Melanie Lynskey as Tony and Ruth between whom an unconventional relationship forms in their combined pursuit to right wrongs in the aftermath of a burglary at Ruth’s home in suburban Portland, Ore. Tony, a rattail-wearing, throwing-star-wielding vigilante-wannabe with some pretty sweet eyewear lends needed moral and physical support to neighbor and disenchanted nurse Ruth in the search for her stolen property. Full of unexpected twists, the film’s climax includes an intense getaway/rescue scene in which Ruth leads their escape by means of rowboat. I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore made Paste’s list of the 20 Best Films of Sundance 2017 and also won the U.S. Dramatic Grand Jury Prize. Paste caught up with the actors in Park City, Utah, to talk about the film, Lynskey’s rowing skills, and shared love for Oregon and the TV series, Atlanta.

Elijah Wood: Nice Atlanta shirt! That show is so good. I’ve only watched the first episode, so I have so much to get through, but man.

Paste: It’s genius. It’s been a long time since I’ve seen a show that’s that funny, and then also that serious.
Wood: The tonal balance is crazy. It starts off and you think it’s going to be a drama, and then it’s definitely a comedy, but it’s both things at the same time. It’s really incredible.

Ahead of starring in Netflix’s new Dirk Gently series, the Hollywood actor tells Patrick Smith why he thinks British comedy beats its US equivalent, and about being mistaken for Daniel Radcliffe

It’s 13 years since he appeared in Peter Jackson’s colossally successful adaptation of Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings, but Elijah Wood still gets called Frodo in the street. Not that he minds. “It was one of the greatest experiences of my life,” says the 35-year-old former child star. “It created more opportunities than it hindered.”

The trilogy also had an unexpected side benefit. “It exposed me to British comedy,” he explains. “The British actors working on it spoon-fed me everything from The Day Today to Brass Eye to The Mighty Boosh. It doesn’t adhere to the same needs of American humour. It doesn’t constantly require a laugh out of you. It’s more sarcastic. There’s more wit to it.”

It’s just as well he has a thing about British comedy. As anyone who’s read Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency – Douglas Adams’s cult crime-solving novel on which Wood’s new eight-part series is based – will attest, its humour is very British, a Monty Python-like blend of intellectually robust whimsy and digressive surrealism.

Historically, the intricate nuances of Adams’s approach have been lost in translation to both big and small screen – most notably in the 2005 film The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and the 2010 BBC Four comedy drama Dirk Gently, starring Stephen Mangan. But this latest series, premiering on Netflix on Sunday December 11, nails the quirk quotient, even if the multiple plot strands have the potential to frustrate viewers.

When Elijah Wood took on the role of the hobbit Frodo Baggins in the famed “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, he was plunged into the world of Middle-earth, where he had to contend with dragons, Orcs, Ents and a Gollum.

Wood’s new project, BBC America’s “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency,” finds him in the real world, but its weirdness could rival Middle-earth. He plays Todd Brotzman, an unlucky hotel bellhop suddenly thrust into a sci-fi flavored mystery populated by an assortment of bizarre characters, including Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett), an eccentric, fast-talking sleuth who believes in the “fundamental interconnectedness of all things” and sees Brotzman as the Watson to his Sherlock.

“Gently,” based on a popular novel by Douglas Adams, marks a return to series television for Wood, who spent four seasons starring in FX’s “Wilfred,” about a young man who has a unique friendship with his neighbor’s dog, played by Jason Gann in a furry dog costume.

In recent years, Wood has put much of his focus on offbeat fare. His extensive gallery of characters includes a technician who erases memories (“Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”), a concert pianist terrorized by a sniper (“Grand Piano”), a horrific murderer who scalps his victims (“Maniac”) and the voice of Mumble the dance-happy penguin in “Happy Feet.”

His other activities include heading up a production company specializing in genre fare (“The Greasy Strangler”) and DJ’ing as half of the duo Wooden Wisdom.

Wood sat down last week to talk about choosing roles on gut instinct, life after Frodo and his new series, which premiered Saturday.

Q: What attracted you to “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency?” Were you familiar with the novel?
